"Wild & Free" Fabric Line Launched!

Carrie TomaschkoComment

Introducing my "Wild & Free" fabric collection!!!! I've put together whimsical designs, woodland flora and fauna, a little southwest, and adorable Noah's ark animals in sweet, soft colors! I'm so excited to be able to share this with all of you!!! A big thanks to the team at Shannon Fabrics for all you do!!!!

This fabric was launched at Fall Quilt Market in Houston!  I loved seeing the versatility of what my fabrics can be used for.  There were blankets, bibs, bedding, and clothing all laid out in beautiful displays at the Shannon Fabrics booth.  These fabrics will be available in December at a fabric retailer near you!  You can check out the Shannon Fabrics website for available retailers.  Once this fabric comes in, I'm hoping to have some fabric items available for you on the sweet melody website as well.  More swaddle blankets will definitely be coming!!!

I spent this past summer working on these "wild & free" designs, inspired by the nature around me, the summer sun and waves, and the childlike wonder of animals.  I hope my new fabrics will bring warmth to your heart and a smile to your face!

"Just Imagine" fabric line!

Carrie TomaschkoComment

Hello friends!  I'm very excited to share with you the newest Sweet Melody news!  After teaming up with Shannon Fabrics, I have just finished launching my new fabric line entitled "Just Imagine" and wanted to give you a few glimpses of what is going to be coming out this summer.

I've just returned from the 2016 Spring Quilt Market, which took place in Salt Lake City, Utah this year.  This is a bi-annual event where all the big fabric companies show off what's new, and is the place to be when you want your new fabric line to be seen.  We met with lots of manufacturers, retailers, and sewing enthusiasts.  The "Just Imagine" fabric line was very well-received, all with positive feedback.  

Within this design line, there are 18 different designs.  Some of them will be in a soft Cuddle fabric (similar to minky), and others will be in the Embrace double gauze fabric.  So what does that mean for you? Shannon Fabrics will be selling to a lot of fabric retailers as well as online fabric stores.  You can find out if a store near you carries some of the fabric and check it out for yourself, I'll leave the info for that at the end of this blog post.  

Another big thing that I am super excited about are the new Sweet Melody Swaddle Packs!  They will be coming out soon (hopefully July 2016) and will be available to purchase here on the Sweet Melody Designs website!  Swaddle blankets were by far my favorite baby item when I had both my children, and were very versatile in their uses besides just to wrap them up snug.  This can be used as a stroller cover, carseat cover, play mat, or just a blanket to hold and snuggle with as they get older.  

There will be three different styles initially available, and each swaddle pack will be a pack of 3 swaddle blankets. These soft and adorable blankets are made from Embrace double gauze fabric, and will be warm and breathable for your little one.  These make the perfect addition to your baby necessities, or also the perfect baby shower gift! Here are a couple sneak peeks of the swaddle packs, the first showing a neutral woodland hot air balloons, along with arrows.  This one will also come with a solid Aruba Teal swaddle.  The other image shows our sweet elephants with the Little One, and shooting stars.  This will be available in baby pink or baby blue, along with a solid as well.

Thanks for tuning in! I hope you are just as excited as I am, and I'd love to hear your comments!
